Men are ultimately responsible for letting women destroy culture and civilization. I believe they have let them do it out of a misguided sense of fairness, which seems to be a particularly Western fault.
Men are responsible for creating culture and civilization. Even Carl Jung wrote about this, although some people try to ignore that he said it, or claim that he was wrong. He wasn't.
(If you want to know how smart Jung was, this is what he said about women trying to act like men: "Women develop an excessive rational drive which may end up in excessive criticism and stubbornness...in women with strong interest in intellectual matters we find the need to impose and maintain a rigorous and schematic list of values judged the most important. There's no reflection as regard the little substance and significance of these values, nor any aim at discussing about them. Only the urge to impose them to others.")
Since men created civilization, men civilize women, not the other way around. The nitwit who popularized the meme that women civilize men was George "Daffy Duck" Gilder, who wrote Wealth and Poverty.
George finally crashed and burned and if we're lucky we'll hear from him no more.
When women get out of control, i.e. when men fail in their duties to civilize them, then societies and cultures get damaged, sometimes severely.
Here's an example: until the early 20th century childen were almost always given to the father in a divorce. Some have claimed it was because in those days men had the jobs and money and women didn't.
I'm sure that had something to do with it but there is something else.
The word "bastard" means a "cruel, heartless man" and "a fatherless boy." In other words, fatherless boys often turn into cruel heartless men. If you want to see a perfect example of this look at blacks, where fathers are usually absent and the kids are raised by the mothers. All of whom, of course, are on welfare.
Men can raise children by themselves. Women cannot. And women most especially cannot raise boys to be men. Fatherless boys are more likely to be poor, to get involved in crime, to abuse drugs, and to have more physical and emotional problems. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
It also used to be in the past that if a woman got pregnant out of wedlock the social pressure was so great she was sent away to give birth and then the child given to an orphanage.
Orphanages no longer exist, and while I'm sure some of the places were pretty bad, I actually know some adults raised in them and they turned out fine. I also know at least three adoptees, and they turned out fine, too.
Imagine today if any single woman who gave birth always had her baby taken away. In other words, imagine if no single woman was ever allowed to raise a child by herself.
Would it be a better country or not? Anyone with any sense would say yes. Those with no sense, say liberals, would say no.
Since men created civilization and culture, this means women cannot do it on their own. As Camille Paglia commented in Sexual Personae, without men, women would still be living in grass huts.
The humorist P.J. O'Rourke made a similar but more amusing comment: without men civilization would last until the next oil change.
As an aside, but not much of one, I knew a woman who tried to start her car by hitting her battery posts with a hammer, another one who thought the red light meant "add oil," and in college I saw two girls pour a quart of oil down the carburetor of a VW Bug.
Leftists of course are going to claim women haven't added all that much to society because of about a billion years worth of "oppression." Yet when you look at the last forty years of leftist/lesbian feminism, ask yourself: are women better off? Are they happier? Are men happier? Has society benefited?
Leftists are about four years old emotionally. They've never grown up. And when society is set up so people can remain children, some of them will remain kids.
Has feminism helped society? Or harmed it terribly?
You be the judge. You already know what I think.
